November Prayers for the Dead

In November, please pray each day for the holy souls in Purgatory, that is, our relatives, friends and benefactors who have died, and those with no one to remember or pray for them. It’s possible between 1st and 8th November to gain a plenary indulgence (one per day) applicable to the dead by visiting a cemetery and praying for the dead. To gain this, you must be in a state of grace, have no attachment whatever to sin even venial, go to Confession and receive Holy Communion within a few days of the work, and say prayers for the Pope’s intentions (e.g. Our Father and Hail Mary).

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.

May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

Books of the Dead have been opened in our three churches.

Please feel free to add the name/s of your dearly departed loved ones, relations and friends if they aren’t already inscribed.
